We warmly welcome international students!

forum3 is the University Chaplaincy for students of the University and the Universities of Applied Sciences in Bern.

The three dimensions of community, spirituality and development form the basis of our activities.

forum3 creates places to meet and celebrate, to experience silence, to exchange about life issues and for the creative expression of students.
forum3 supports students in their personal and spiritual development. Its events offer space for the discussion of religious, ethical and social topics.

Pastoral Care

As a university chaplain I am here for you

If you feel lonely, if problems or pressure are weighing on you, if questions about your future are bothering you, if you don’t know what to do; in short: if you need a professional, open ear, then don’t hesitate to contact me.

Independence and confidentiality are a matter of course for me. The offer is free of charge. You can call or email me. Pastoral care is possible in direct conversation or via email:

Below you find a selection of our events. We look forward to getting to know you!

We warmly welcome international students! Do you want to come up to the Niederhorn with us in winter for fondue and night sledging? Would you like to develop concrete ideas with others on how to live sustainably? Take a look at our programme
